Before our son was born we were told by everyone with a child that we need to get a good diaper pail and the overwhelming recommendation was the Diaper Genie II.  As a guy I was thrilled because this is like a gadget for the nursery.  It has a cool bag attachment, a blade for cutting, requires me to make

Babies love to sleep right?
Infant sleep habits

When my son was born the hospital stay was a breeze.  We fed him, he would sleep for a few hours, we would feed him again, burp him, swaddle him, and off to dreamland.  Once it was time for us to go to bed we wheeled him down the hall to the nursery and it was great!  After everyone saying

So you are going to be a dad?
Expecting a baby

At this moment you are either thrilled out of your mind, confused, or petrified about the prospects of being a dad in a few months.  My wife and I tried to get pregnant for awhile and when this moment arrived it was exciting and emotional.  That was quickly followed by several weeks of nausea, sleepless nights, stress, and doubt…my wife
